Practice makes perfect


Practising their performance every day during the school holidays has paid off for about 80 dedicated Wakatipu High students at this year’s Stage Challenge. 

The kids collected three prizes – for student participation, lighting and costume – following their eight-minute show in Dunedin last Thursday. 

The career-focused performance was entirely put together by the pupils. 

“They produced a really dynamic and outstanding performance according to the judge,” support teacher Robyn Handtschoewercker says. 

It was an exhausting day for the kids, who left Queenstown at 4am Thursday and got home at 4am Friday.
